- I understand such confusion well...both brands are to be recommended, both guitars are very good in their category. The history of Paco Castillo is quite different (Family Julia Abad, their contribution to Alhambra brand and, finally, creating the Paco Castillo brand) and Señor Antonio Picado who was working for some time for Taurus in Barcelona and via them in indirect way was constructing some instruments for Jose Ramirez. Years ago I was taking under serious consideration the Paco Castillo 205 /cedar, I even took a long drive to seller/distributor to test play PC 205, but this meeting turn out to be, say, a misunderstanding, and life went in other direction. And after another couple of years I was fortunate to acquire my AP.
